Moments after the second friendly endedMoments after the second friendly endedOver the past three days, Macedonia U19 managed to rebound from Tuesday's 4:0 loss with a 2:0 win on Thursday.

The first friendly started one hour later than the planned start time of 17.00 CET due to the heat. The U19 national team struggled mightily and was no match for Slovenia. The hosts grabbed two goals in each half, including one own goal midway through the first half. It was complete domination by Slovenia over the 90 minutes. Macedonia will have a chance to redeem themselves on Thursday when these teams play again.

The final score was not prettyThe final score was not pretty

The second friendly did indeed bring positive change. Macedonia U19 looked much better and went on to win 2:0. Valentin Kochoski, a member of Pandev's academy currently loaned at Turnovo, opened the scoring in the 40th minute, while substitute Martin Hristov grabbed the second goal in the 90th minute after bad goalkeeping by the Slovenian keeper. Just before halftime, Kochoski nearly scored a spectacular bicycle kick goal, but his effort struck the right post.
